Site Accessibility

Although this website makes use of Style Sheets to control the font type, size and colours, everything can in fact be controlled by your own home browser if you feel you need to view the text in a different font, font size or even a different font colour.

All web browsers allow you to ignore the pre-set layouts of any website, and to set the font and its attributes to suit your own personal needs.

For example, in Microsoft Internet Explorer (The menus below are from Internet Explorer version 9) you can override the font used on any web page just by following these intructions:

To specify website fonts and colours:

1. Click to open the Internet Explorer browser.

2. Click the 'Tools' button on the 'Menu Bar', and then click on 'Internet Options' at the bottom.

3. Click the 'General' tab, and then do one, or both of the following:

● To change the font, click 'Fonts'. Specify the fonts you want to use, and then click OK.
